you're right. he was drafted in 2009, and then had TJ surgery in 2011. then on his way back he only had 13.2 IP last season. he is finally back to where he should have been before the injury.
he was one of the top prospects before the injury including the Twins #1 prospect.
he has just as much of a chance to succeed as any other top prospect coming up this season.
He was a top prospect for real life...sometimes real life and fantasy life aren't equal. Take the Trevor Cahill comp for example...most MLB teams would love Cahill in their rotation but he's just ho hum for fantasy. And no, he doesn't have any chance to become a Shelby Miller or Matt Harvey type of guy....just doesn't have that kind of upside.
